Your adoption deserves a compassionate and experienced lawyer. Whether you are an adoptive parent or a birth parent, I will handle your adoption with care, competence and kindness. Over the past 18 years, I have been privileged as an attorney to have been involved in hundreds of adoptions in the Kansas City area. I have helped adoptive parents in every type of adoption in both Kansas and Missouri. I have also represented dozens and dozens of birth parents in both Missouri and Kansas and am grateful for the perspective this experience provides me as an adoption lawyer.
My office is centrally located in the Kansas City metropolitan area and I practice regularly in both Kansas and Missouri.
I have spoken at continuing legal education seminars for Kansas and Missouri adoption lawyers on adoption law in both Kansas and Missouri.
I am a member of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys.
